What do you expect when you watch Pirates of the
Caribbean movies? Surely, you will expect Captain Jack Sparrow’s crazy actions. However, I cannot find the same atmosphere in the last sequel of Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I know it’s released last May and I realized that it is not an up to date movie review. But hell yeah! I just watched it last night (thanks to issues regarding Hollywood’s films banning several months ago in ). Indonesia
At first, I expected to get the same enthusiasm and excitement when the movie started. However, after 20 minutes or so, I got bored. The movie plot runs so slow as compared to the three preceding movies. Even until the end of the movie, I somehow cannot really catch where the climax of the movie is. Jack Sparrow’s craziness is also rarely found in this movie. This is the part that missed the most. I just simply could not enjoy watching this movie as much as I enjoyed the other Pirates movies. I think I missed the trio –Sparrow, Turner and Swan. The existence of Angelica somehow cannot replace Swan. I personally think Angelica’s character is overshadowed by Swan’s.
As a fan of Pirates of the
Caribbean movie, I can say that I am disappointed by this movie. I thought it is wise for Disney to only finish the story in the third movie. The third movie serves as an epic ending of the previously-thought-to-be trilogy. I think my opinion is also supported by the rating the movie gets in IMDB. It only gains 6.8 of 10 stars, the lowest of all Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
As for me, I will rate the movie 7 of 10.
